, there's an energy boom under way in the united states right now. fueled by hydraulic fracturing and by more drilling for oil. natural gas is currently cheap, abundant and increasingly used not just as a fuel source direct to home and businesses, but as a source for electricity generation. as for oil, you don't need me to explain the value of producing it. it's not about cars and homes, more domestically produced energy will help fuel a resurgence in u.s. manufactured goods, combined cheap and abundant electricity with costs in china and other countries and shipping costs and you make made in america more attractive to americans and to buyers abroad and that's good for u.s. jobs. finally, housing is already making a comeback. it started to turn around in 2012 with existing home sales rising for the first time in years. construction is starting to pick up. historically low interest rates averaging below 4% for a 30-year fixed mortgage will fuel a rebound next year. a house will be the most important asset for most americans. a rebound there makes americans feel better about their
energy- efficient. the general consensus is people like that. one other thing that i think is overlooked in terms of value, and i don't know of the survey talks about it, is landscaping and plants. lance camping, plants, and trees are really inexpensive compared to major remodels. i often feel it is something that is heavily overlooked. it as a lot of value. it is a touchy-really, emotional part of a property. oftentimes, we don't have front yards. maybe there should be a tree out front. maybe you should have potted plants lining the stairs going up. perhaps the rearguard in, although you never use it, doesn't matter if you don't get sunshine. plant flowers that do not need son. those are oftentimes good ways to spend money on adding value to your home. >> people that are selling their homes do need to have someone that will absolutely come in. i had a stager come in my house. you need to have another i that will absolutely have you get rid of the little things that you think make it look homey and people love it, but the value -- there is a very big value here. it is the same thing as t

as to whether there would be a challenge for that. we observed that the rise and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambigu

called hamas an energy of peace. wish we knew the answer to the next question. but can israel and hamas co-exist peacefully? >> if hamas was to moderate its positions, if hamas was to accept israel's right to live in peace, if hamas was to renounce terrorism, if hamas was to support the peace process, those are the three u.n. conditions, then, of course, the door would be open for dialogue. >> how likely is that? >> up until now hamas has been stuck in a very, very extremist position. you saw they shot rockets at jerusalem, at tel aviv. when there was the terrible bombing on the bus in tel aviv a few days ago they praised that and said it's justified. not a lot of information to suggest that hamas is any way moderating its position so i think we'll have for the time being, will have quiet based on israeli deterrence and based on egypt's involvement and the promises hamas made to egypt to keep the kwai >> mark regev, thank you so much for talking with us this morning. >>> so did the palestinians get what they wanted? in our 10:00 hour we'll talk with a former palestinian negotiator about
